RFLP Typing of Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) isolates from infected Indian patients.
Chetan D. Poduri, and Das M. R.
RFLP typing of hepatitis C virus (HCV) isolates from seven of ten infected Indian patients was carried out and all were found to be infected with genotype 3b of HCV. Earlier studies have suggested that type 1 could be the prominent form present in India. Our results clearly suggest that there are two concurrent on-going infections of HCV in India caused by types 1 and 3.
